Many thanks

Hi kenabbott,

To the best of my knowledge you would have to either create a web page which has an iPad friendly looping video or use an app such as Loop Video.  The native video player doesn't loop nor does YouTube.

If anyone else reads this question with the same problem I found a solution that works.  At time of writing the commenst above are correct, there is no way of looping a video on the iPad.  However I needed my 2 minute .mov video to loop for approx an hour so I simply copied it onto itself 30 times and discovered, much to my surprise, that the file size hardly increased at all.  I had assumed that it would grow very large but because it stays the same size this, whilst being a round solution, does get over the looping problem.

Hope this helps
